"This Will Be The Second Time That Mass Has Been Celebrated In This Mediaeval Church Since Pre-Reformation Times."



Saint Augustine's Church,
Snave, Ashford, Kent.
It is possible that a small private Chapel stood on this site before the present building was commenced in the Late-13th-Century. The East End is unusual in that The Lady Chapel
(more recently used as a school room) vies for importance with The Chancel.
Declared redundant in 1983, Saint Augustine's Church is now
entirely maintained by The Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust.
